Read a note from Toki below and let us know what you'd like to hear from him and the next hip hop show in the comments.

Dear Listeners,

It has been a great ride so far on The Current with Wright About Now. Starting in July I'm relocating to Boston to become the Assistant Chair of Professional Music at Berklee. In this prestigious position, I'll be working with up and coming musicians across disciplines, developing a record label, teaching, and creating many events with international artists and industry representatives. It's an honor to be at an institution that has graduated Quincy Jones, Esperanza Spalding, Stephen Tyler and more (even Eric Andre and Psy!). I'll also be finishing my new album with Big Cats and writing a book. Most importantly, I'll be welcoming my new baby girl into the world with my new wife Brittany Wright (Lynch) also known as DJ Miss Brit.

This move isn't about disconnecting from Minnesota but instead building platforms for artists and professionals from across the World to network and develop. I look forward to developing new forward-thinking ideas with The Current as we progress further into the digital age.

Thank you to all that have been tuned in so far. It's only going to get bigger and better.

Bless Up,

Toki Wright
